Caption: Rime ice. Large deposits of rime ice formed on pillars after stormy weather at a mountain location. Rime forms as tiny droplets of supercooled water come into contact with a surface below freezing point. The deposit forms on the windward side of the object, sometimes forming these large, tabular features known as frost feathers. Rime ice is normally only found at higher altitudes, as at lower altitudes supercooled fog or drizzle is rarely encountered. Photographed at the Saentis meteorological station in the Swiss Alps.
